Panic starts Google Group for Coda, Web dev

Portland-based Panic, makers of some of the prettiest and most usable Apple Macintosh software anywhere, has announced the formation of a new discussion group, designed to facilitate communications among Coda users and Web developers in general. The discussion group is hosted on Google Groups.

Back in the Audion days, we had a very active (and useful!) mailing list, and it seemed only natural to re-create such a thing for Coda. It’s a complex and powerful program, and in talking to users, I frequently see a lot of its capabilities get overlooked, just because it’s a big piece of machinery.

Both Coda itself and general web development topics are fair-game for the mailing list. We hope the list will be a boon to both you the Coda user / web designer, and us the developer.

In related news, Panic also announced the release of Coda 1.04.

This release concentrates mainly on the remaining 1.0 bugs, and some important Leopard compatibility issues. That means, I’m sorry to say, no Subversion or Global Find-and-Replace yet. Now that most of the more significant bugs are dead, we’ll once again be shifting our focus to features, so hang in there!

Coda named one of the 35 absolutely essential Mac apps

Portland-based Panic is well-known for developing beautiful and intuitive Apple Macintosh applications. So, it comes as no surprise that their latest product, Coda, follows suit.

What has been a nice surprise is the rave reviews the product has been receiving around the industry.

The latest? Freelance Switch has named Coda one of the 35 Absolutely Essential Mac Apps. To wit:

Coda is an all in one application that makes designers want to take notes and is a lot of web developer’s only tool. A text and css editor, a built in file browser (let’s not forget, these guys built Transmit) and an Apple Design Award to its honor. It also comes packed with a an actual web reference book reformatted and built into the actual application.
